Thanks for the clarification Martin. Perhaps HB engineers would consider the ability to save the NMEA output to flashcard in their future software update. Wouldn't be too difficult i think.

then it sounds like your puter is trying to open the program with another viewer. Try to right click humviewer and in the drop down there should be an open with option. Try that. I'm no teckie though, just a suggestion....

When I double click runHumViewer.cmd I get The DOS Box C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe and
in the box "The system cannot find the file specified. Then in the Pop UP Box " Windows cannot find "java".  Make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again.

The program never shows up.

Hi Bob
There have been others that have had problems getting the program to run under Vista, but they have managed to get it running. I dont have Vista myself and it is quite different from XP, so it is a little difficult for me to help.

Try to take a look at reply #112 and the replies after that, maybe that can give you some ideas to how to get it working.
I hope you will get it to work.

Hi Martin,

I loaded the program on my XP desktop system and the program works fine.  It's hard to carry the desktop on the boat 15' Bass Cat.  Will keep trying to get it to run on Vista and will try it on Windows 7 also.

Thanks for you help

Hi kosmo,

Tried you suggestion. Removed all versions of HumViewer. Rebooted computer. Downloaded Java, Downloaded HumViewer 3.031, extracted to C:\Desktop\WinViewer 3031.  Set runHumViewer.cmd to operate of XP service pack 2.  Double clicked runHumViewer.cmd and same thing I have been getting for days. The Program will not run on Vista.  I have it running on my desktop with XP and Windows 7, both OS work good.  Will keep trying to get it to run on Vista.

Thank You for your Suggestion.

Bob

Hi Martin,

I can only agree to all the posters before me - you do a very great job!!!

I have to thank you for some catches in a new water a few weeks ago. Without your software the humminbird si sonar would only be half so nice.

Also the feature to export the depth data into a .csv file is very nice - so i can import it into the drdepth software directly. But for this feature i have a question:

Is it possible to adjust the amount of data outputs into the .csv file per second? I can not find something about this (settings, cfg). The reason is to get more accuracy on higher boat speeds.

/Wolfgang

(excuse my bad english)

Hi Wolfgang
Right now there is no option to set the data output interval, but I will put it on my to-do list.

I am hoping that now when we are getting into the cold and dark period, that I will get some time to finish the next release. But no promises...

Hi,

I must say I'm impressed with the Humviewer software.  I've only just started using it (version 3.x) and it shows me much more than I can see on my 997.  I have a few questions....
I'm trying to keep my other Lowrance unit updated with the waypoints I'm marking in Humviewer.  so I'm trying to export to CSV files (as suggested in the release notes) but I've been unsuccessful in finding this capability.  Under export, I see the options to save for Google Maps and .GPX, but not CSV.  Can someone give me guidance? 
I'm using excel to format the CSV waypoints for the Lowrance and then loading them into Lowrance's MapCreate 6.  From there, I can load them to my X-19.  Can someone suggest a better way to achive moving waypoints from Humviewer to my lowrance? 
Once again, Humviewer is an excellent tool.  Thanks for providing it.

Under export, on the window "What to include in export" You can see 3 checkbox. Mark ONLY "recording track"
and then you will see option to export to CSV.

Hi guys

 I guess this "Windows cannot find "java""-Problem can be solved with adding the directory to the path variable.. i added "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin"

i think its a 64bit problem..

Greetings

You will need to give more details.
- What Operating system are you using ?
- Did you install with the option 'bundled with java' ?

Have an issue with the new software. I have some recordings that I had save to a CD that when I attempt to open them up my computer locks up and have to do a hard shut down and restart computer. These are recordings that were made on 797c2 back in 2007 so may be an issue of the older version of recording. I do not have any current recordings as I had an external hard drive crahs and lost most of my data.

Do you open the .dat file directly from the CD ?
If so try to copy the recordings to your harddisk first. HumViewer will make a .xml file in the same directory as the .dat file and if the recordings are on a CD, this will fail.

If it locks up when you opens if from the harddisk I am interested in receiving one of the recordings.

I downloaded Humviewer to my Windows XL computer.  The viewer opens fine, but when I downloaded the sample file, I couldn't find it in the Open window.  It was on my desktop.  I double clicked on it to extract it, and I can't find the resulting file.  Deleted all that from my desktop, and downloaded again to My Documents, same thing, can't find the file to open.  I searched for *.DAT and *.XML, but didn't find anything that looked right that worked.

What does the file look like after it is extracted?

Thanks,

I figured it out with the help of the step by step on another part of this forum.

I downloaded the sample to a file I created in Humviewer called record.  Then I opened it in that file which made an R0001.DAT file. 

Then I opened Humviewer, and clicked File open then selected my computer, then C:\, then program files, then Humviewer, clicked on humviewer, then on record, then on the R0001.DAT file which opened the sample.

Thanks for your software, and this forum.

Probably not doing anything wrong.   
File transfer sometimes corrupts a file,  for any number of reasons. 
Delete the corrrupted file and reload.

Hi Martin, thanks very much for the program. It is a fantastic tool for reviewing scans when  i get home! I have found things that I did't see on the small screen on the boat!

Just wondering if it would be possile to change the "Crop From"  feature to be a enterable number in addition to the pick list.
The reason is so that I can remove the water column from  the picture when viewing - say 23 metres of water. Currently i have to choose either 20 or 25 metres from the pick list.

Keep up the great work!!
Thanks & regards,
Chris.

Make sure you're using the right format for your waypoints.

DD'DDDDD  is what I use in all applications like Google Earth, HummViewer and on the unit.

Maybe you have different settings there.

Hope this helps and good luck

Nope, unfortunately not. :-(

It is definitely a program issue. 

1. Play your recording back on your HB and take a waypoint of an object then export the navigation data to SD card. 
2. Open with HBPC and view in Google Earth.
3. Play recording on Humviewer and create waypoint of the same object then export to Google format.
4. Go back to GE and open the file you just created with HViewer.
5. Use the measuring tool to measure difference between the two waypoints now displayed.

I think humviewer uses slant range correction  and  humminbird  doesn't.  That  could be a factor depending on the distance from the track and water depth.

My HB 1197cxSI is very accurate when taking waypoints off Side Imaging using the cursor and 'MARK'.

Make sure the GPS "datum" being used by each program is the same.  For example in the USA we use  WGS-84 or NADS-27 although there are several others.  If the datums are not the same then the actual spot (GPS coordinates) will  be different .

Make sure the GPS "datum" being used by each program is the same.  For example in the USA we use  WGS-84 or NADS-27 although there are several others.  If the datums are not the same then the actual spot (GPS coordinates) will  be different .

WGS-84 datum used and common in all programs.

John , it would be interesting to add a drdepth sidescan mosaic waypoint into your comparison.

DrDepth Mosaic and the on-board 'Mark' waypoint very close.

Yes WGS-84 is more common, but it is a customize selection. Depending on the printed map you may be referencing and the GPS unit you are using there will be differences in the readings. Since the datum is selectable some change to another datum that in previous application they are familiar with.
All I am saying here is that when positions dont match just remember to check the datum selection as one of the possibilities..

I took waypoints of several objects from a humminbird recording played back on a 997 ,  that same recording viewed in humviewer  and also a drdepth sidescan mosaic.  The  .GPX  files were opened in global mapper .  I can't use google earth since the aerial photo stitching in my area is poorly done and  causes problems.  Humviewer and drdepth waypoints  were 2 - 2.7  ft. apart.  Humminbird waypoints  4 -5 ft. from center point  of humviewer and drdepth waypoints , easier to put an  accurate waypoint on a 24 inch computer screen than a 997 screen.  Also looked closely at the lat /long readings from humviewer waypoints.  With my equipment and in this area the humviewer waypoint creator works fine.

The waypoints between DrDepth & my 1197 vary slightly from waypoint to waypoint, but the Humviewer waypoints are all the distance out.

Hm,

what is it you're marking there Fishton?
If it is a big object like a wreck, I think 15 feet difference might be caused by placing the cursor when creating the waypoint.

Keep us posted

So the shift in length and direction of humviewer waypoints is consistent across all of your recordings ?

The last thing I can think of is to check settings/ transducer settings in the humviewer menu.

The majority of my waypoints are in relatively shallow water and are of rocks, timber and nests.
